the essence of the obama administration across foreign policy process is a centrally run process out of the white house by the national security advisor, by the president, the vice president. i think you will see more of that, so we will see more of the same, with a few exceptions. >> is stepping back approach, and you think that is going to be showing in mali and syria? we are likely -- unlikely to see the u.s. taking the lead in those conflicts? >> i am worried. we had china and japan increasingly competitive with potential conflicts with territorial disputes in the south china sea. we had india and pakistan. we had new instability in northern africa. we have syria. we have a number of crises potentially multiplying, but i do not see a different or strong or old set of initiatives from the u.s. i hope so. ink tv. >> hello, the top stories. troops have retaken two central towns from rebel groups. the government extended the state of emergency by three months. soldiers in retreat briefly seized the information ministry. they have reportedly called on the government to pass a draft co
